    I just picked up this grease gun at autozone:

    What do you think? Is it a POS or what? It was only $30 but I would rather have a higher quality one if I can get it locally, like at a NAPA. I read Lincoln is a good brand. What do you guys think?

    The pistol grips are the best. You should be happy with that one. JMO.

    I haven't used that particular kind, but it looks like it should get the job done and last for quite a while.

    Grease guns are cheap as it is, if it breaks, go buy another. I wouldn't waste money on an electric or pneumatic gun. they end up being more of a pain in the ass than anything.

    With that said the grease gun I'm currently using has been in use for the last 13 years or so. I'll try to go see what brand it is later on.

    don't know much about OEM brand, but Lincoln makes a good gun. also, Alemite #525 is a great pistol grip gun. i currently use a Lumax...which is junk lol it's been getting me by though.

    I have a couple from NAPA, and Im not impressed with the quality....not for the price anyway. I think that one will do just fine. :)

    Hmm I need to do that too.

    I've got the cheap one form checker. I think I paid $10. It greased my UCA's fine, soo it'll probably do the trick on my drive shaft.
